Bus Éireann is to take up the school bus runs previously operated by Lough Swilly Bus.

The company plans to have the new services in place by the end of the Easter break next Monday morning.

Over 2,000 schoolchildren hold tickets issued by Bus Éireann for use on over 50 school bus routes and a number of public scheduled bus services provided by Lough Swilly Bus Company before the company ceased trading.

Bus Éireann has asked parents and guardians of schoolgoing children using the services to ensure that their children are at the normal pick-up points in good time.

The vehicles providing the services from Monday will be contracted from local private bus operators operating on behalf of Bus Éireann. Further information is available from Bus Éireann, Stranorlar at 074 913 1008.

Bus Éireann operates the School Transport Scheme nationally on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills.
